We'll start in the morning, whenever you want. I will pick you up from the hotel. After a short briefing, I first let you see how the people are making rice noodles. After that, we are going to see how the old lady is rolling the cigarettes. After...more

Nice to see another temple that's not in the angkhor region. Its falling down more and more so will probably change a fair bit. Child sellers up the steep steps but just ignore them if they bother you.

An Angkorian era temple , on top of a hill and no tourist hordes and extortionate entrance fees! The 250 odd steps up to the top are a bit of a challenge but it was worth the climb !

It’s worth it once you’re at the top! It’s a workout, but we did it in less than 10minutes, so even if you need some short breaks to get there it will never take you longer than 20 minutes! You’ll be happy you did it

To be honest we didn't make it to the top because of the sweltering heat. The place is gorgeous but when it is too hot the way up to the temple is brutal. We saw tons of beautiful butterflies fluttering about.

we do love temples all best of our view we went there because of bamboo train had moved near by. if you visited temples in Siem Reap Angkor park i do not recommend as Angkor is good enough.

This temple is very nice. It's less maintained and restored than many others but it gives it a certain dilapidated charm too. A visit to this temple requires you to be mobile and sure footed as there are over 300 steps up to the top....More

All these places around Battambang make you appreciate their past and their culture. There is no visit to that area completed with seeing it.

Yes no problem, take water too, lots of steps. Then when you think you're at the top there are lots more!
